35 Years

On November 3rd my parents celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary! **Congrats mom and dad, you are an inspiration to all of us! We look forward to celebrating your 60th! :)** Us kids took them to dinner at the Yard House, and then we hung out at Danny and Grace's. We had a lot of fun hanging out and watching the girls interact. Declan was pretty mellow, but give him a couple months and he'll be able to hold his own with those girls! Of course I had my camera there to capture the evening! (And the one picture I didn't get that I should have was one of my parents together! Oops!)
Uncle Chris and D

Uncle Danny and Gemma
Aunt Larissa and Hope('s legs)
Grandpa and Hopie

Daddy (his crazy eyes) and D. The shirt reads "Everyone's Favourite Boy", he needs to wear that as much as he can before Grace and/or Larissa have a boy!

Hope, America's Next Top Model

Gemma, America's Next Top Injured Model
(The cast is off now and she's fine!)
We gave our parents a Family Tree photo frame with the inscription "Our Grandchildren" on it. Trevor's dad has one and I've always wanted to get one for my parents and now I have!

the girls wanted to help open the gift...

but then Hope found Gemma's pacifier......

so Gemma had to "chase" her down to get it back!
These two steps have come to be known as the "baby couch" where the girls like to sit. Gemma was standing there by herself calling for Hope to join her: "Hopie! Hopie! Hopie!" When that didn't work, she shouted the first name she had been calling Hope: "BO!!" Sooooooooooooooooooooo cute! :)

And the family shot of all of us. Unfortunately, I didn't focus well! :( Oh, well, there will be plenty of opportunities to come, and more grandbabies to add!

Great photos. What's up with Trevor's eyes in the "crazy" photo? Funny.

Firstly....what happened to Gemma's leg?? I know there have been other pics, but I just realized you never explained what happened. And secondly, I am in need of a blog from you. It's been too long. And there needs to be pictures. Okay. Happy Thanksgiving!
